    One of the photo's show the table on the saddle and bed and the outboard support sitting next to the machine. I would suggest you slide them under the saddle and rough level it for now so the saddle and table don't twist. Also when you place wood under parts on the floor place the part on 3 points at 30% : 40% - 30%. I have been writing about this on PM for years. If your in a hurry 2 x 4' or 6 x 6 at 30% is better then on the ends. 3- points will self level like a transit. If you have a surface plate on a stand, look under the plate. Expensive Grade A surface plates set on 3 points to eliminate twists.

    I hope you got more big pieces than what is in picture 3 as you are missing some large parts. Did you try contacting G&L? They should be able to get you a manual from your serial number. They were able to provide me with one and a foundation diagram for my 340T.
